Higgs discovery: UO physicists play crucial role
July 9, 2012
From the group of Jim Brau
Physicists on experiments at the Large Hadron Collider say that they have observed a new particle, but they remain uncertain that it is the predicted Higgs boson.
The UO’s contingent at the ATLAS experiment comes from the Center for High Energy Physics, which is headed by Brau. Other involved faculty members are David Strom, who currently is the ATLAS trigger coordinator, Ray Frey and Eric Torrence.
